Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, New York, plans to expand beyond its existing 4.1 mile racetrack, clubhouse, private garages, and service center. Its plan makes full use of the 670 breathtaking acres in the Catskill Mountains. At the end of ten years, it will be looking at a much-expanded Monticello Motor Club (MMC). The priority and acceleration of projects will be determined by member utilization, demand, and volume, but the plans include the following projects:
MMC will add up to 200 private garages, including a two-story garage with a timing tower that overlooks new pits and racing paddocks designed to support professional races.
A new member clubhouse, roughly twice the size of the existing facility, will include expanded dining areas and catering facilities, locker rooms, a larger pro-shop, and spa services. The clubhouse will also have a timing tower overlooking the north pits and attached garages for day use.
New access roads and trolley paths will allow members and guests the ability to reach a variety of natural viewing areas.
A 2.5-mile off-road course will be available for year-round use. And snow- and ice-making equipment around the Mushroom Course will provide MMC with the ability to offer winter driving training and experiences from January through mid-March.
Second, the facility will build a bridge across the track with two lanes for vehicles as large as tractor-trailers and a separate pedestrian lane. The foundation will be complete in November, and the bridge will be ready before our 2014 season kickoff. Accessing private garages, fuel pumps, MMC's service center, and private race shops will be easier than ever.
Third, additional garage buildings will be completed over the winter, with both single-and double-deep bays and private storage options for 1-8 cars. Two well-known race shops—Speedsport Tuning and DeMan Motorsport—already maintain a dependable, on-site presence for Porsche enthusiasts. In 2014, both will expand their support for members and guests with new satellite facilities at the track.
Fourth, MMC is putting the finishing touches on a 2.5 mile off-road course design and expect to be driving this new course by the start of next season and through the 2014-5 winter. A fleet of off-road vehicles will be available for members and their guests.
Finally, the club intends to start the first autominium buildings, capable of supporting up to 6 living units in each building.
